Madéo has been working as a reseller since 2002. She sells household electrical appliances to all clients, in her shop. She buys her products in Lomé and works alone. At the moment, her major difficulty is that she is out of stock.

In the coming years, she would like to open a second shop. She says that with the profits, she is planning to take care of her children's education.
